The Pirelli Calendar will be back in November with its 2015 edition - 'why should we care?' we hear you ask.

Well, dear reader, this year's Pirelli Calendar is particularly special.

The famous calendar, put out by Italian tyre company Pirelli and starring the fashion world's top models, turns 50 this year and for the first time ever it will include a plus size model.

About bloody time.

The gorgeous Candice Huffine will grace the covers alongside the likes of Joan Smalls and Karen Elson, proving that women and while some may groan that it's yet another token gesture, we hope this will contribute to the fight to use plus size models and it not be an extraordinary thing.

Soapbox politics aside, what else do we know about Candice?

She has rubbed elbows with Robyn Lawley and Tara Lynn for Vogue Italia's Curvy issue in 2011, and walked in Lane Bryant and Isabel Toledo's runway show.

She's also smoking hot, a fabulous cook and she loves a good pair of shoes - just check out the pics from her Instagram feed.

Hello, girl crush...
